Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Absolute value of a real number

    Denoted by |a|, represents the number a or the positive number -a if a < 0.

  • Bounded

    A function is bounded if there are numbers b and B such that b ? ƒ(x) ? B for all x in the domain of f.

  • Cosine

    The function y = cos x

  • Demand curve

    p = g(x), where x represents demand and p represents price

  • Directed line segment

    See Arrow.

  • Direction angle of a vector

    The angle that the vector makes with the positive x-axis

  • Fundamental

    Theorem of Algebra A polynomial function of degree has n complex zeros (counting multiplicity).

  • Imaginary axis

    See Complex plane.

  • Independent variable

    Variable representing the domain value of a function (usually x).

  • Instantaneous rate of change

    See Derivative at x = a.

  • Linear factorization theorem

    A polynomial ƒ(x) of degree n > 0 has the factorization ƒ(x) = a(x1 - z1) 1x - i z 22 Á 1x - z n where the z1 are the zeros of ƒ

  • Lower bound of f

    Any number b for which b < ƒ(x) for all x in the domain of ƒ

  • Mapping

    A function viewed as a mapping of the elements of the domain onto the elements of the range

  • Midpoint (in a coordinate plane)

    For the line segment with endpoints (a,b) and (c,d), (aa + c2 ,b + d2)

  • Monomial function

    A polynomial with exactly one term.

  • Parameter interval

    See Parametric equations.

  • Quartic function

    A degree 4 polynomial function.

  • Reflection across the x-axis

    x, y and (x,-y) are reflections of each other across the x-axis.

  • Solution of an equation or inequality

    A value of the variable (or values of the variables) for which the equation or inequality is true

  • Vertical translation

    A shift of a graph up or down.
